This word is derived from a process “vitrification”.
Vitrification is a partial fusion of the clay body to achieve low porosity & impermeability to water. Vitrification is achieved by heating the raw body of tile up to 1200º C to liquidize it.
So vitrification is a term for the process of making a tile body. With the vitrification process, 5 types of tiles are available in the market today…
Soluble salt tiles
double charge tiles
full body tiles
color-body digital GVT
Pallets add INR 1 per square feet ($0.15 per m2) cost to a tile shipment.
In the domestic market, there is no need for pallet packing. It is ideal for sending cargo to long distances. Several pallet suppliers can arrange packing at your chosen factory.
Pros: + Pallets protect your tiles from breakage.
+ You can load or unload fast a full container when tiles they pack your goods in pallets.
Cons: – They can load less number of boxes when the tiles they pack your cargo in pallets.
– It costs extra as mentioned above.
At Morbi, any factory can arrange to load pallets inside the container. Check if a forklift is available at the destination to offload the containers?
Yes, you need to agree with your transporter for multi-point loading (at extra charge) before booking a truck. Multi-point loading can delay loading as if the second point factory does not receive truck on time they may load it next day. There is a better alternative though. You can use a service called TempoMorbi (+919909998161). They can help you in such a scenario.
